Hello, I need to populate a Single Select List Custom Field with about 1000 option values.
In Jira Onprem I could use Scriptrunner built-in script to do that but there's no offered functionality in Jira Cloud.
Any recommendations/guidance is appreciated. Thank you.
I'd go with a Python script and loop over the list of option names calling the REST resource
but it is a bit fiddly. Does Bob Swift has a plugin to do this perhaps?
Create a spreadsheet with all 1000 option values in a single column, along with Summary of "DELETE THIS".
Save as CSV.
Import CSV, populating custom field with contents of that single column.
Delete all 1000 issues where Summary = "DELETE THIS"
BUT ALSO... 1000 option values? That's a lot of scrolling!
Possible concerns over performance:
Thanks Darryl, I will give this a try.
Yes, unfortunately we do need over 1000 option values for this dropdown in order to enforce correct spelling and ability to filter accurately. Fortunately, select lists in Jira Cloud already auto-search when typing so there's no need to scroll.
